PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Department of Transportation said Friday that the renumbering of exits along Interstate 95 will be pushed back one week.

The numbers were supposed to change starting Sunday, but the department said drivers can expect to start seeing those changes Aug. 7.

The exits on the highway will be renumbered based on a mile-marker system, required by the Federal Highway Administration. The department said these changes will make it easier for drivers to navigate and know how long it is until their next exit.
